Description

A tough climb up the trail with amazing views of the Ocean and Mountains. This via ferrata-esque hike is definitely a treasure within Acadia National Park. Given the exposure, this hike is not for anyone with small kids or with a fear of heights. However, you can access the summit via another easier trail.

Short Hike: Parking lot near the trailhead.

Very beautiful view. Pretty sketchy because it was so open and a little scary but I got through it. One of the toughest trails I have ever done.
